Bill Frisell readies four-night residency at Berkeley's Freight & Salvage / San Francisco Chronicle

Bookmark and Share

Bill Frisell contains multitudes, but it's not often that several of his bandstand personae get to hang out in the same building. With music as variable as the weather, the protean jazz guitarist seems to introduce a new band or project every month. But most of the time, he's on the move with one ensemble focusing on a particular body of work.

In a welcome change of pace, he plays a four-night residency at Berkeley's Freight & Salvage from Thursday, Feb. 28, through Sunday, March 3, offering a wide-angle glimpse into his variegated creative realm with a different lineup for each show. He opens Thursday with his trio featuring bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen, the volatile rhythm section tandem for trumpeter Steven Bernstein's Sex Mob, and special guest Sam Amidon, a folk singer with whom Frisell has occasionally collaborated.
